Police say a man has died after he became trapped by stone sheets inside a shipping container in the Melbourne suburb of Campbellfield.
Victoria Police said the man was inside the shipping container at a business in Campbellfield about 10:00am, when police believe the stone sheets shifted and trapped him underneath.
"Emergency services attempted to free the yet-to-be-identified man who died at the scene," police said in a statement.
Firefighters have been coordinating efforts to free the man's body from the container.
The Melbourne Fire Brigade said about 25 firefighters were called to the scene and were working with heavy rescue specialists, high-angle rescue technicians and urban search and rescue operators.
A second man was taken to hospital for observation.
WorkSafe Victoria inspectors have arrived at the scene and police will prepare a report for the coroner.
